Word of the Gay: "Isosexual"

"Isosexual" was proposed as a term to describe gays and lesbians because it is defined as characteristic of or pertaining to the same-sex. It was meant to be used as a substitute for what was seen as female exclusion in the term homosexuality, the term however never caught on.

Someone I used to know suggested Androsexual for anyone sexually attracted to men, and Gynosexual for anyone attracted to women.

Please, can we keep from further separating gay* men from gay* women. We need one word that describes our mutual attraction for the same sex.

*Please insert your word of choice.
